The NBA trade deadline is approaching fast, which means that teams around the league are starting to hammer away at deals they may want to either offer or accept. Typically, teams that aren’t in line to win anything other than a high lottery pick are teams that sell at the deadline and one such team appears to be the Milwaukee Bucks.
But while the team is in the dumps and a virtual lock to get the best odds at the No. 1 picks, there might not be a whole lot of movement on the Bucks’ trade front. One of their most valuable chips, Larry Sanders, has been announced as being out for the next six weeks, which means his trade value has plummeted in the eyes of executives.
This significantly hurts any trade value that Sanders had, although it was looking unlikely that he’d be moved. Milwaukee was reportedly turning teams away who were asking about Sanders, implying that they fully intended to keep him.
With his injury sidelining him for over a month, Sanders will indeed be staying place in Milwaukee and his name will likely stop coming up in trade talks unless someone is insanely desperate to land him.
